Spring Term 3 Hawthorn Class newsletter

This term in English we will be continuing and finishing ‘Holes’. We will base most of our written work on this including diary writing; discursive writing; recount; a short story and factual information. Comprehension will be based on old SATs papers, with children learning how to approach the test and in particular the longer questions.

In SPAG we will learn about passive and active; connectives; prepositions; comparative and superlative adjectives.

In spelling, we will focus on learning rules and continue to utilise our spelling boxes.

In maths this term, we will spend almost the whole term on fractions and decimals. We will revise what a fraction is and know its equivalent decimal and percentage. Also, the children will need to know how to add, subtract, multiply and divide fractions. This obviously includes equivalent fractions and understanding how to simplify and expand. Children also will be taught how to find fractions of quantities.

Our topic this term will be Rainforests. It will include where in the World they are and the climate. Once we have established the general geography of them, we will concentrate on the Amazon rainforest. Looking at layers of the forest, we will explore how this gives different habitats. Also we will find out about the plants and animals that live there. We will go on to think about indigenous tribes and deforestation in term 4.
